Just IN: Microsoft Discontinued All Xbox One Consoles

Published

on

According to a recent report from TheVerge, all Xbox One consoles are being discontinued by Microsoft. Production on every version of the Xbox One was halted by late 2020, and the only available copies were the consoles that remained in the retailers’ stock, which was exactly Microsoft’s intention.

The software giant originally discontinued the Xbox One X and digital Xbox One S ahead of the Xbox Series X launch, and then quietly stopped manufacturing the Xbox One S at the end of 2020, leaving retailers to sell out their remaining stock.

Confirming this report to TheVerge, Cindy Walker, senior director of Xbox console product marketing said, “To focus on production of Xbox Series X / S, we stopped production for all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020,”.

The news indicates that Sony and Microsoft have aligned in their separate missions to be rid of the old and usher in the new. Sony has taken steps to stop producing its Playstation 4 consoles whereas there has been a shortage of PlayStation 5 worldwide.

It has been suggested that Sony has plans to produce about one million new PS4s during the course of this year while it prepares to support the PS5, which possesses a more advanced chip than its predecessor.
